Kentish Knock-1, which was drilled in 1200 metres of water to 2500 metres total depth, hit 34 metres of net has pay.

The Kentish Knock prospect lies about 300 kilometres off the Western Australian coast. The prospect is in the WA-365-P permit area in the Exmouth Plateau, the deep-water frontier of the Carnarvon basin.

Chevron also operates Kentiosh Knock with a 50% stake. Shell has the remaining 50%.
